Sounds Like San Diego: May 12

The sound of Timber Timbre fills the Irenic on Tuesday

The last time Timber Timbre was in town was 2011. I remember the band because I worked for them that night, selling their merch. I hadn't heard of them before then, but by the end of the night I was mesmerized by their music and style. I remember it being somewhat hypnotic, and the fans that were there were rabid about the group. Tuesday night, the psychedelic-folk band returns on the heels of the release of their third record on Arts & Crafts, "Hot Dreams." The Canadian band is sure to mesmerize once again and is supported by the also amazing Xiu Xiu, this time to an all-ages crowd at the Irenic. Meanwhile, the Casbah hosts bands from all over the world, so you can catch Vaadat Charigim (from the Burger Records family) with Froth and Muscle Beech, or head over to Soda Bar to catch Aussie indie act Jakubi. It's kind of a great night for music, so go get some.
